I think some women still feel a pressure/stigma to be married - I have met a few very "successful" women in terms of their careers yet, based on what they said, I got the impression that they felt they were nothing, unless they had a husband. I can understand the desire for a love marriage. Arranged marriages do have a "bad reputation" in that if you mention "arranged marriage" to someone, they will most likely think of it being a forced marriage. This is sadly true in some cases. I have also heard of "modern" arranged marriages where the man and woman are matched up (not as in a dating agency), they go out a few times (family backgrounds/checks are carried out to "ensure" compatibility) and then if the couple like each other, they marry. I have read a few articles where some have said that they like this because it takes some (a lot?!?) of the pressure out of dating/trying to meet someone for love.
